Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor recently opened up about a traumatic experience from his childhood. In an interview with MidDay, the actor shared that he was in Delhi with his father, Pankaj Kapur, when the incident occurred. They went out to eat, and after some time, they were mobbed by people who recognized his father from the popular show “Karamchand.”
“I had a traumatic experience because of it. My dad had come to Delhi, and he wanted to take me out. We went to Nirulas in Delhi, and while we were eating, people started crowding around him. Then, one by one, people started bringing carrots, and I have this memory like a wide-angle shot of many people holding carrots, saying, ‘Eat this from our hand,'” shared the actor.
Pankaj Kapur, being a reserved person, was offended and angry. He asked Shahid to run, saying, “My dad is a very reserved person. He is a serious actor, and he takes his acting very seriously, even when he is doing comedy. He said, ‘What are you guys doing? I am eating pizza with my son here.’ And we had to run away from there. He held my hand and just said, ‘Son, let’s run.’ I remember thinking, ‘This is pathetic,'” Shahid shared.
Following that incident, Shahid decided not to go out with his father anymore as he was traumatized by the experience.
Shahid’s last release was Bloody Daddy. The actor will be seen next in an untitled romantic film. He will be starring with actor Kriti Sanon.
